Driving through the Umbrian hills, in the distance, you will see a town sitting on a large butte of volcanic tuff towering majestically over the valley below and you realize that Orvieto is not just any city ...
Called "the high and strange city" since when seen from afar, during the day, it seems to be resting on the clouds, but it is at night that it is magical .... It appears suspended in the sky surrounded by the stars with the moon floating above.
Orvieto is not only magical from afar, when you are inside its historic walls you will find a treasure chest of art, where every corner you turn will give you glimpses of new gems.
Walking through the city is like taking a trip back in time, from the Etruscan Necropolis of Crocefisso del Tufo, to the Temple of the Belvedere and then on to one of the most beautiful attractions of the city, the masterpiece of 16th century engineering, with its double helical spiral staircases, St. Patrick's Well, which is 53 metres deep.
Walking through the historic centre you will get glimpses of the elegant spires of the Duomo of Orvieto emerging between the rooftops. And when you arrive at the square where the Duomo majestically stands your breath will be taken away. The building, started in 1290, is one of the greatest masterpieces of Italian Romanesque and Gothic art, with its wonderful facade decorated with bas-reliefs and sculptures, the rose window, the mosaics and the bronze statues, moving inside are the superb frescoes of Beato Angelico and Benozzo Gozzoli in the Chapel of San Brizio.
